White Socks

It was splendid season of baseball!!

Gar played on player pitch league this year. He is awesome!

Gman was one of the youngest on the team. He held is own though. I was proud of him for trying so hard and learning some new things.

Gar played short stop and outfield. This season he caught a ball that was hit in the outfield.... it was awesome!

His confidence is a little shy when it comes to hitting. He really practiced and did he best. He got on base several times and scored several points for his team.

His greatest strength is his speed. Often times we would catch up to the runner in front of him. He is one fast baseball runner!

He enjoyed his teammates and have wonderful coaches!!

... and wouldn't you know it. They won the Championship!!!

But of course they won it..... Garrett seems to land himself on pretty great sports teams! I told him he must be the lucky charm!

Hot Springs Adventure

We thought it was be SO much to take the kids up to the Hot Springs in Spanish Fork Canyon.

Everyone did really well on the hike up. The trees were plenty green from all the rain this year. The river was roaring and rushing down.

As we got the Hot Springs we realized the water was so high it had pretty much washed away the lower springs.
(Check out all the water)

So we headed up to the Spring located higher up. The only obstacle we had was crossing the river to get over to the Hot Springs. I should have taken a picture. We walked across this think board to get to the other side. It was pretty intense, but we all made it over safe.

Here we are .... enjoying the warm water!

The river was pretty fast and the water was high. It was fun to relax and soak up the warmth as we watched the water rushing down the river!

Just as we were getting in the weather turned on us. Our beautiful day turned into a major hail storm. The trails were slippery with mud and water. The hail hit on us for what seemed like eternity. We tried to hide under a tree, but we found very little coverage. Zander slipped a couple times.... getting himself all muddy. We all did our best to carefully run down the path to the car, but the hike is about 2.5 miles. I am pleased to say we all eventually made it down. Even little Zander didn't cry too much. We were covered in mud and soaked to the bone but it sure made for a great story and some crazy memories!!

Gar is 9!!

It's hard to believe Gar is 9 years old!!!

Garrett is a shiny spot in my life. His constant smile melts anyone's heart.... especially when it comes to getting out of trouble. He just flashes that smile and bomb.... I am wrapped around his finger. G-man is so many GREAT things. Smart. Happy. Fun. Sly. This past year he has grown up. I have to add to the list.... independent. He barely needs his mom anymore. And as a matter of fact, he keeps me in line most of the time these days.

Happy 9th birthday G-man!! Love you kiddo!!

May Birthdays

This year I thought I would be so smart and have Garrett and Zander's birthday parties combined. For the most part.... the party was a success. I think all the kids had fun and Garrett and Zander were happy birthday boys!

Check out the line of kiddos. We had a total of 26 kids that showed up. WOW!

It was tons of fun!!

Jump on It was the choice of activity.

Everyone left with smiles!!

Garrett LOVES burrito's. He had a breakfast burrito that morning and then picked to go to Barbacoa so he could have another type of burrito for dinner. He loves his soft shelled food!!
(he is always has a silly face)

Megan also celebrated her birthday in May. Bruno Mars tickets were her special gift. She said she even had a good time!!

Happy Birthday!!
